Unsurprisingly, Harris will be shelved Saturday while recovering from a bruised right knee. He will be re-evaluated in about 48 hours. In his absence, Shake Milton, Tyrese Maxey and Mike Scott could all see extra minutes.

Avoids structural damage
Harris suffered the injury during Thursday's game against the Mavericks. In good news for him and the 76ers, he's avoided any structural damage, though a knee bruise isn't necessarily a quick recovery. Philadelphia's next game is Saturday against the Cavaliers, and Harris should tentatively be considered questionable for that game, but it would not be a surprise if he sat out. If Harris misses time, Mike Scott, Tyrese Maxey and Shake Milton are all candidates to see expanded roles.

Nearly double-doubles off bench
Howard saw extended time in the second half, including playing the entire fourth quarter with the game out of reach. His 14 points match what he totaled over his previous three games combined. While he's failed to play at least 20 minutes in five straight contests, Howard has still managed to haul in at least five boards four times.
